It's been nearly two months since water rushed through historic main street in Ellicott City.

As the clean-up and rebuilding continues, progress is being made everyday.

'Su Casa' furniture store opened Tuesday. The store received minimal damage during the flooding, unlike some of their neighbors but, the owners are grateful to be reopening their doors.

"We had to get in here and clean everything and in cleaning everything that sort of created more work for us. Once we got everything cleaned, then we could focus on what we needed to do to get back open. That involved re-doing the floors, re-doing all the paint and making sure it was all squared away, cleaned up and good to go." Owner Nicholas Johnson said.

'Su Casa' will have a reopening celebration Saturday starting at 11 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon.

The store will raffle donations and donate 10 percent of Saturdays' sales to its neighbors still recovering.
